Just wondering how LO's birth weight compared to the predicted US weight right before birth. Was it higher or lower & by how much??
I have a few more weeks, but baby's a little on the small side (according to US) & I just need some reassurance.
DD - Juliana Joan - Born October 27, 2010 - My Little Princess
BFP 1/14/13 - M/C 1/22/13 @ 5 weeks
BFP 3/20/13 - EDD 11/11/13
31 week 3 days 3lbs 5oz
33week 3 days 3lb 13oz
35 weeks 3 days 4lbs 7oz
I had 2 u/s the week before DS was born due to GD. At 38.5 weeks they estimated him already at 9lbs 6oz. At 39.5 weeks they estimated him at 10lbs. He was 8lbs 1oz when he was born (c-section) two days later. So, obviously WAY off in my case.
Oliver715:haha... Funny you ask.... At 38 weeks they estimated her weight to be 7 lbs 9 oz... She had to be delivered by c section at 40 weeks because despite induction I couldn't get past 1-2 cm... She weighed 9 lbs 4 oz... WAY off!!!
This is what I'm hoping for! I don't want him to not fit, but I want a good-sized baby, you know? Off by 2lbs is a lot!! My gut feeling is that he's bigger so I guess I'll just wait & see.....
I didn't have an ultrasound for weight done, but my midwife felt my belly and said 'whoa thats going to be a big baby!' At 36 weeks she was predicting she was over 7lbs and if I went to 40 she would be 8/9 lbs. Baby was born on 12/13 at a shocking tiny 6lbs 5oz! I had braced myself to push out a big baby but when they put her on me I could not beleive how tiny she is.
I had a growth U/S at 35 weeks and LO was 6lb 7oz at that point- which would predict him to be about 9 1/2 lb at birth. I had a c/s a week before my due date and he was 8lb 15oz- so it was right on!!
With DS1 he measured 6lb 7oz at 34 weeks, and I also had another u/s 3 days before he was born- it said he was 9lb 4oz, and he was 9lb 11oz at birth.
So for my guys they were pretty damn accurate! I think the tech doing it has a lot to do with it, and they also told me if baby has a large abdomen it will throw the weight estimates off big time.
I think I've got the biggest baby in this thread!
I had two growth U/S during the 38th week, both predicting him to be 9lbs 2 oz.
We was born at exactly 39 weeks weighing 9lbs 13 oz. I count my blessings for the existence of this technology - I certainly don't regret getting a c-section as the doctors suggested. There was no way that this moose was going to exit my petite body any other way.
